Cells - Critical Thinking in Science
What are the structures in cells and what are their functions? Budding biologists discover the answers to these questions through an in-depth examination of cells and organelles. Using the 5E learning cycle, learners explore the types of organelles using an electron microscope, research, draw, and describe the function of each one, explain how different cell types make up different kingdoms, then design and execute an experiment to determine the effect of pH on algae.
Cell Cycle Portfolio
Students work together in groups to complete various stations on the cycles of cells. Individually, they keep their completed work in a folder after following specific instructions on how to complete each experiment. They use the materials in their folders to take an exam.
Plant and Animal biology
Students use the internet to gather information about plants and animals. They identify the components of a plant and animal cell and components of a human brain. They also examine the human cloning issue.
Enhancing Uptake of Glucose in Rabbit Muscle Cells
Students observe diffusion of glucose through a cell membrane and research the function of chromium picolinate in glucose uptake into a cell. They conclude and understand the role of insulin and chromium picolinate in the uptake of glucose into a cell.
The Day an Egg Solved the Mystery of the Cell
Learners conduct an experiment comparing human cells to chicken cells. In this cells lesson plan, students conduct an experiment to see how nutrition moves through cells and how to better take care of their bodies.
Tenth graders explore the parts of a cell. In pairs, classmates construct a model of a eukaryotic cell, detailing its morphology and function. With the use of computer technology, 10th graders create cell book for middle schoolers. They design an informative multimedia presentation, on the cell, for younger learners.
Lesson Plan: The Cell- A Historical Perspective
Learners discover the impact the invention of the microscope had on scientific discovery as well as the concept of spontaneous generation and the cell theory. Students examine these scientific concepts through a WebQuest and by viewing a spontaneous generation website.
Testing for Lipids, Proteins and Carbohydrates
Students perform tests for the presence of certain macromolecules. For this health and biology lesson, students rotate in groups to three lab stations and perform tests for proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates found in familiar foods.
Photosynthesis 101! You'll find four activities, pre tests, post tests, full color handouts, and hardcore scientific information to help you tech a photosynthesis. Use the resource to guide your teaching or just use the great handouts, it's a win/win either way.
Phases of Mitosis
The lecturer starts by emphasizing that the mitotic process is a separate mechanism to cytokinesis - the cytoplasm splitting to become 2 cells. The video continues explaining the stages of mitosis in great detail. Each stage is diagrammed and the relevant structures are labeled and explained. Your students will find this to be a valuable supplemental study tool.
It is fascinating to learn about apoptosis and the fact that cells are able to destroy themselves without any external influence. Sal creates interest in the huge number of cells and the complexity of the human body. The likelihood of a mutation causing a problem is small, and that mutation would have to be within the genes controlling self-destruction and replication. The lecture continues with details of tumor growth and the differences between malignant, benign, invasive, and metastases.
How do Hypotonic, Hypertonic, and Isotonic Solutions Affect the Water Movement of a Cell?
After removing the shell from a raw egg, cell biologists soak the egg in either a hypotonic, hypertonic, or isotonic corn syrup solution. They calculate the percent change in mass and compare it to the strength of the solution in a graph. The procedure is clear and the questions are relevant, but the appearance of the lab sheet is quite boring. If this is not of importance to you, then this is a terrific resource for your biology class when learning about osmosis and the cell membrane.
Stem Cell Development
Like a fresh canvas, stem cells can turn into almost anything. In a comprehensive lesson, high school biologists use clay to build a 3-D model of cell division and the processes that occur during the first 14 days of development. Also included is a detailed graphic organizer for taking notes about the important concepts and vocabulary related to stem cells. The procedure is very clear and easy to follow; your pupils will enjoy getting their hands dirty while learning about how they all came to be.
Osmosis and Plant Cells
Aside from obviously being a photocopy and a couple of minor formatting problems, this is a laudable lab activity for exploring osmosis. Biology groups cut potato chunks into equal volumes and record the mass of each. They place two chunks into each of three different concentrations of salt solution and later record the new masses. Analysis questions help lab mates think critically through the inquiry. This simple, straightforward activity will enlighten learners about this form of passive transport.
Nature of Biology
Learners study biology and the different life processes. In this exploratory lesson students identify the parts of a microscope and the tools used in research and technology.
The Levels of Biological Organization
Students study how an organism must have an organized system for proper growth and development. In this investigative lesson students illustrate the function of a cell.
Making New Cells
Students study the cell cycle and see the differences between mitosis and meiosis. For this cell reproduction lesson students complete several activities.
Cell Structure and Function
In this cell worksheet, students describe the components that make up the cell and their functions. Students discuss background of cell theory, complete tables, label charts and match functions of cell structures.
Regulation of Cell Division
Cell division and all the biological aspects of activation and chemical signals are detailed here. Cyclin, G phases, cell growth, and cancer checkpoint control systems are explained and the triggers listed. The slides are very clear and logical and the information very useful albeit detailed to a college level.
Tour of the Cell 2
As your class views each slide, they will be introduced to the organelles and structure of the cell. Details about structure and function are given and also some trivia about their frequency and population. There is also some information about potential related problems. A wonderful introduction to cell structure.
